A farm hand in Kenya alerts authorities about a stray lion

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martinez.

Lions are definitely not to be messed with. So when a farmhand in Kenya saw one, wildlife authorities were called. After investigating, it was discovered the lion was harmless. Turns out that in an attempt to protect their avocado tree seedlings, a homeowner had put them inside a bag that had a realistic picture of a lion's head on it. Now, you see, if I was that farmhand, I'd have said, (imitating county accent) Sweetheart, tell me my lion eyes are wrong.
